'The Kremlin in Asia' at December 16 at Camden Public Library

'The Kremlin in Asia' at December 16 at Camden Public Library

Paul Holman will present “The Kremlin in Asia” at 6:30 pm on December 16 as part of the Camden Conference’s Community Events Series. What is happening in Russia? Is Moscow trying to build a new empire—along the lines of the defunct Soviet Union—or is it moving toward cooperation and interdependence with the West? What are Russia’s strengths and weaknesses, in the three-way rivalry with the United States and China? This lecture will explore and explain the strategic choices facing the Kremlin, stressing the implications for Asia. Winston Churchill famously described Russia as a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, yet Russia today is far less mysterious than during the dark days of the Cold War.

Dr. Holman will take a close look at how the world has changed since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
